>> al: second and 27. this time it is caught by floyd and they get about 22 of those 27 back and now you have another flag. back at the 33 yard line. >> referee: holding, number 61 offense. ten-yard penalty. second down. >> al: that is nick hardwick, the center. >> cris: san diego fans will be looking for the replacement officials. >> al: yes, they will be. >> cris: don't have to circle hardwick battling one-on-one and got a little tug of the jersey. wow. just huge plays being taken off the board one after another! >> al: and the chargers are thinking where was the interference call that wasn't called on the interception? >> cris: wow. second and 37 after they hit two of the biggest plays of the night.
11:31 pm
>> al: from the 28 yard line. rivers deep down field and another flag is thrown and the ball is going to wind up on the ground at the 22. intended for meachem. jenkins was back there. here comes another call. >> cris: you can hope that -- >> al: which is an automatic first down. even a five yard defensive foul penalty is an automatic first down. >> referee: illegal use of hands. hands to the face, number 95 defense. five-yard penalty. automatic first down. >> al: that is the way you get to a first down off a second and 37. >> cris: martez wilson. man, oh, man. what a bizarre ending to this one. martez wilson right in there is
11:32 pm
where that happened. here he comes right at you. hands to the face. good call. >> al: from second to 37 to a first down. to give san diego life. still 67 yards away. 1:30 and have all of their time-outs. and rivers will throw and that is ronnie brown and brown will spin his way for a first down. stays inbounds. >> cris: ronnie brown has some nice open-field moves. he has made people miss consistently on this drive. may want to try to get him the ball a little more often. >> al: chargers elect to keep all of their time-outs but taking a lot of time off the clock here. and now a conference with cheffers. because did he pick up the first down is the question. it was first down. it was -- now he looks at it. yeah, 11-yard gain so, obviously, it's a first down but
11:33 pm
there's some question -- and then norv turner is saying, put the time back on the clock! here is the end of the play. here is brown. he spins. he rolls. he has the first down. turner doesn't get the time back on the clock. the pass to the outside. and that is floyd and floyd will stay inbounds. >> cris: that's horrible. >> al: at the 49 yard line and now they are compelled to take a time-out. >> cris: almost like he thought he was out of bounds. >> michele: second time-out. >> cris: he did try to get out of bounds, i'll say that for him. but nice job by johnny patrick to keep him from that. a good play and the forward momentum, a good play on that one. >> al: right. acrobatic catch by floyd. >> cris: he is driving him backwards. official blew the whistle. properly called. >> al: not according to turner. second down and two.
11:34 pm
the ball is at the 49 of the saints. >> cris: this is good stuff. >> al: 53 seconds. two time-outs. over the middle. it's caught at the 44. a short gain. malcolm floyd to the 43. that moves the chain. clock still running. inside 40 by the time they get this one snapped. the ball is at the 43 yard line. rivers, a little dump-off. and that is going to take it to the 33 for brown and they are going to have to take a time-out here and they do. so 28 seconds remaining. one time-out left.
11:35 pm
and they have to navigate 33 yards. >> cris: one thing that philip rivers and norv turner do a great job of is using that motion to help them determine if it's man or zone. you can see them that time when they put somebody in motion, if there was someone trailing them, they went to their man route. if not, they went to their zone guy. but now the clock is ticking and all that back and forth on those penalties ate up precious time for the san diego chargers. >> al: at the 33. meachem and royal come to the right. floyd to the left. the pass is incomplete. he had gates over the middle and gates is screaming that he was held. no flag.
11:36 pm
>> cris: well, gates is going to give it the arm over. he is sick of this. watch this. harper is on him and he says get off of me. like a post man in basketball. he said you called me. let's call it both ways but there was no foul there. >> al: second and ten. the pass is incomplete. pressure was put on and that time, it was martez wilson who knocks rivers to the turf. rivers gets up and looks for a flag and gets none. and it's third down and ten. >> cris: march tells wilson coming off the edge here and not sure whether or not ryan mathews is supposed to get a tip, but i'll tell you, gaither looks lame. he is going to have to get some help here or wilson is going to get a sack to end this game. they have to realize now that
11:37 pm
jared gaither is really hurting. don't know if his back is locked up or gate but having a tough time moving and they put gates that way. >> al: ronnie brown in the backfield on third and ten. and rivers is going to lose the ball! and you called it! it's martez wilson coming around for the sack and fumble and the exclamation point on this one. >> nobody saw it. the play before, he couldn't move. right here going to come around and gaither, watch him. he just can't move. he is limping out there. he is doing his best. he should have turned around to philip rivers and said, either i've got to go out or you have to get me help on this side. he didn't do it and martez wilson made him pay. >> al: that is the hat trick for a defender. you get a sack, a forced fumble, and a recovery.
11:38 pm
and the saints finally get off the schneid before their bye week and they go to 1-4. so a big night for brees. payton is able to look on. and the history making night and a victory for the home team over the san diego chargers who now go to 3-2. and only the chargers, since 1933, have started a season 0-4 and gone to the playoffs a that is the mountain that they will try to climb. norv turner congratulating drew brees on a record setting night in which not only does he extend the streak but throws four touchdown passes and 370 yards. the wendy's postgame report is coming up on the other side of the break. let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs
11:39 pm
11:40 pm
when president obama couldn't. first, my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china,
11:41 pm
and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. new orleans wins it 31-24. that drops san diego to 3-2. the saints keep their admittedly slim playoff hopes alive with their first victory of the year. they are 1-4 heading into their bye week. four touchdown passes for drew brees. the first one broke johnny unitas record and 48 touchdown passes in consecutive games. he is on the field with michele tafoya. >> michele: a big night for you personally, drew. let's start with the win that i
11:42 pm
know was so important to this team. you guys felt like you were close and gelted felt like you were getting there. what put you over the top tonight? >> we finally put together a complete team effort for all four quarters. i can't say enough about the guys in our locker room. obviously, we have been through a lot earlier this year but hung together and hopefully, this is the first of many wins. it could come at no better fashion than on "sunday night football." going into the bye week, hopefully, we will get healed up and ready on a streak here. >> michele: speaking of streaks. 48 straight games with a touchdown pass. breaking johnny unitas records. what is it about this record that means the most to you? >> so many things. first of all, it's a team record. it's not an individual record. so many people were responsible for this on our team, coaches, people within our organization. certainly the man who held this record, johnny unitas, stands for everything that is great about this league and really one of the pioneers of this game. hi a chance to meet his son this
11:43 pm
week, joe unitas. that was a special, special treat. obviously, feeling that we had their blessing and support in us breaking this record and couldn't have happened in a better way. >> michele: you said it's a team win and so many people involved. you asked the commissioner for special permission to have sean payton, along with mickey loomis and joe vitt here. how do you think payton's presence in the building tonight might have impacted this team and this performance? >> gave us some good mojo for sure. i love my coach. i love my coach. so glad he could be here. mickey, joe vitt as well. special for our team. special that they could be a part of this night with the record. just overcome with emotion right now. but, hopefully, it's the first of many opportunities we have of things like this as a team. >> michele: drew, is it a little bit sweeter that this came against the team that drafted you and then let you go, the chargers? >> yeah. i figured you guys are no
11:44 pm
dummies when you scheduled this on "sunday night football," week five. to be honest, with you i didn't think twice about it when tefs on the schedule the start of the year and then the talk of the record came you and what do you know? we are playing the chargers on "sunday night football." like i said it couldn't have been a sweeter night. >> michele: congratulations, drew. >> thank you. >> michele: bob? >> our thanks to you, michele and drew brees. we shift to new york and welcome in tony dungy. your reaction to tonight's game and drew brees record setting performance. >> well, congratulations to drew. it was a great performance. we said in the pregame show that the saints have the talent to turn this thing around to get on a streak and if they do and get back in the playoff hunts, the biggest play of their season may be something that not they did, but san diego did. melvin ingram makes a great inside move and causes an interception but unfortunately leads with his helmet. this would have put them 17 points down but the roughing the passer call gave new orleans a
11:45 pm
shot to get back in it and drew brees took it from there. that could be the biggest play of the saints season. >> a pass interference call later in the game against gates negated a big gain for the chargers when they were on their way back. >> yeah. two big penalties that i'm sure san diego will be looking at during the week. but they had their opportunities and you have to give new orleans credit for take advantage. >> elsewhere, two big name rookies were in the spotlight today. for different reasons. andrew luck and rg3. >> yes, the two top two picks in the draft and we saw what makes these guys special. andrew luck was sensational today. bringing them back 18-point deficit. the leadership, the will to win, all of the things that his teammates really feed on. and i just thought he was sensational. the start of a really great career and i know the colts are just excited to have him there. robert griffin iii started out a
11:46 pm
little bit faster than luck. had that big game opening day and this is the thing that they are doing with him. they are getting him out of the pocket on design plays and he is going to have to do this more, bob. he is going to have to run out of bounds, know when the play is over and not try to make every play a touchdown. he got hurt today. and i think he is going to learn from that, but these two young men are going to be great quarterbacks in the league for a long time to come. >> well, the last thing you mentioned ties into the first thing. we will talk to mike florio about. here is mike from pro football talk who will take us through the day's injuries which includes the concussion suffered by robert griffin iii. >> tony mentioned that injury to griffin. now the league is looking into whether or not the redskins violated the injury reporting rules by failing to disclose during the game that griffin had suffered a concussion. all of the redskins said is that griffin was shaken up. in kansas city, quarterback matt cassel also suffered a concussion. after the game, starting tackle eric winston called out the fans who actually cheered when cassel
11:47 pm
left the game with an injury. for the steelers, who got a big win today against the eagles, they have a short week to turn it around on a thursday night and they are missing possibly two of their starting defense players, troy polamalu who returned from an aggravated calf injury and returned from that injury today and lamarr woodley suffered a hamstring injury, the outside linebacker. >> folks, get the latest nfl news and information from mike florio all week long by tuning into the all new pro football talk which airs tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. and every weekday on the nbc sports network. al and cris back to wrap things up from new orleans after this. . uuuhhh! leave ordinary behind with wendy's new bacon portabella melt. applewood smoked bacon, rich portabellas in a melty cheddar sauce.
